I love this quote from today’s New York Times article about New Orleans:

“At Sylvain, for instance, a three-year-old Southern bistro on Chartres Street, the co-owner Robert LeBlanc makes sure the last thing his bartender does before closing is to pour a lowball glass of Sazerac and light the candle that sits on the bar. Call it a buy-back for the resident ghost, Aunt Rose Arnold, a former madame who LeBlanc insists still haunts the building.

Indeed, sometimes it seems as though the whole city is negotiating with ghosts — more so than ever in the wake of Katrina.”

The entire article is worth a read though…
